BRUSSELS - Ash from an Icelandic volcano is likely to affect flights in parts of Denmark and southern Scandinavia on Tuesday, European air traffic agency Eurocontrol said.

Eurocontrol said in a statement that about 250 flights had been canceled in British airspace on Tuesday due to high ash concentration over northern Britain and part of Ireland.

"According to the Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) in London, there is a strong possibility that the ash cloud may impact parts of Denmark and southern Scandinavia in the course of the day. This would have some impact on flights," it said.
